Description: OpenID Reference Implementation (OpenID RI) provides the building blocks to create an implementation on a website, which supports the OpenID industry standard for authenticating the identity of users accessing that website. Users can be authenticated either through an OpenID account with that user or through contacting the website with which the user has an authenticated OpenID account. The OpenID RI facilitates these implementations to be created on one of a variety of operating systems using one of several programming languages.
